The Amherst Shotokan Karate Academy has started its transition into the Summer schedule. Last week, Sunday classes and Youth classes went on hiatus for July and August.
July 8th will also be the final Zoom class, for now, as restrictions have been lifted enough to allow students from New Brunswick enter Nova Scotia.
The Summer Schedule for Amherst Shotokan Karate Academy is as follows:
Dojo is open:
- Tuesdays and Thursdays
- 5-6pm open practice
- 6-7pm instruction
On July 31, Sensei Norm Robitza, 5th Dan, will visit Riverview East Karate for a special training session. Sensei Robitza has been the chief instructor at Mount Allison’s Sackville Shotokan Karate for almost 2 decades.
Starting today, Nova Scotia will move into Phase 2. This will allow Nova Scotia dojos to reopen. Check with your Sensei on when classes will start up with the new regulations.
Also the Atlantic Provinces have announced that Inter-provincial travel will begin again soon.
Riverview East Karate is pleased to have TWO very special guests coming to host a sparring clinic on Monday June 21st.
Sensei Craig O’Neil, 5th Dan, won the karate provincials for fighting 7 times and competed nationally as well. He started training in karate in 1986 and received his black belt in 1993. He has many years of teaching and competing and we are very lucky to have him come to Riverview for sparring training.
Joining him will be Sensei Barry Ripley, a karate founder in our area who started training in 1966.
The clinic will be at the Coverdale Rec Center on Runnymeade Rd. Riverview, NB.
This is a free event. There will be 2 separate groups 6:30pm and 7:30pm. Sparring gloves (red or blue) can be purchased at the dojo for $35. Please make every attempt to attend this special class.
